of the merger. i was hearing it was a full out acquisition, the new york stock exchange getting bought by the intercontinental exchange and that blew me away. it is an amazing story. we fight for seconds here. going on the air, basically saying at the new york stock exchange about the taken over, this is not a merger of equalss, this is a takeover of the most venerable, one of the most venerable institutions in american finance, the new york stock exchange. it is been there since the old button agreement. [talking over each other] charlie: that is why they call it -- they became essentially a club of freighters under that and expanded to much bigger than a tree, beautiful headquarters, but here is the thing. when i started to digest it it was a phenomenal story. the intercontinental exchange was created only 12 years ago by jeff springer, a longtime executive in the energy industry. people don't realize energy is a commodity, commodities are traded in exchanges locking in costs. he came up with a system to forget about the pits of chicago where people ice-cream at each other or new yor

the jeffries trading floor today in new york. peter, you have a lot of different scenarios, but the most likely scenario that you think is that the blackberry fails, there is no acquisition on this and the cash firm continues? >> yeah. we think it costs about $1 billion to launch these devices. if successful, we think an access possibility goes up. if not, we see the company become much, much smaller a year from now. >> how do you measure success? and when we we know on this? >> we'll probably know around around/may next year. success would be call it 3 to 5 million units in the first quarter out of the gate and 5 million units plus after that. to us, that would be a very good launch. >> for anybody who is actually a blackberry user still, what do you say about these things? if there's a takeover, does that mean blackberry continues? what's the long-term outlook for the company? >> i would suspect that if you're a blackberry user, there's very little chance that your service is going to be cut off. that is a key cash flow driver for the company and anybody who would want to buy isn't concerned
evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. wants new gun laws, right now. this is the ed show. let's get to work. >> we're going to change things. it's going to take a wave of americans, mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, pastors, law enforcement, mental health professionals, and yes, gunowners standing up and saying enough. >> the president lays out the way forward for sensible gun policy. so why are no republicans getting on board? i'll ask congressman jerrold nadler. >> at some point they have to take me out of it and think about what is best for the country. >> the president served up painful cuts, and republicans are literally running away from the table. >> hey, mr. speaker. >> congressman steve israel reacts to the gop's bizarre behavior. plus, today's big gm news means the death of a righty talking point. >> government motors. >> government motors. >> government motors, david cay johnston on a huge success story for government intervention. and the invisible man sitting next to clint eastwood wins time's person of the year. >> what do you mea

. >> susie: the threat of the fiscal cliff was a big topic at an investor conference in new york today hosted by johnson controls. this wisconsin-based industrial conglomerate is a leading provider of products to make buildings energy efficient, and it's also the world's largest maker of car batteries and automotive seats. c.e.o. stephen roell told me he's worried that uncertainty about the fiscal cliff could hurt consumer confidence, and his business. >> we don't do that. as the consumer, i products to costumers like the big three, that in turn sell to the auto industry. my biggest concern is how it will affect the psychology of the consumer. i've been surprised, susie, that people continue to buy automobiles. but my fear is that could change dramatically. >> susie: steve, to what extent are the ups and downs impacting your business day to day. >> i think people are holding back on making captain investments. i see that particularly in the building side. from m stdpoit, i continue to invest around the world. i'll invest to make sure i'm buying the strategies we laid up for the next three ye
is joining me from new york. thanks for coming inside "the war room," mark. >> thank you for having me. >> jennifer: i know you have on the air a lot because of the tragedy last week. i'm curious about the policy arm of your organization and what can be done on the state level. many states have or are introducing laws to allow more concealed weapons in public schools, for example. what is your organization doing at this point for that. >> going to the states is one of the many paths to victory to this issue. one of the paths was actually shown in michigan -- your own home state. so you have a very republican governor there and the nra was on the path to pass two really bad bills, one would eliminate background checks for concealed weapons, and the second would allow concealed carrying in places like day cares and schoolyards. and in a matter of weeks the nra had both of those initiatives completely reversed. we beat them on the first one, after the connecticut shootings the governor vetoed the bill and he should have. so the nra is on its heels at this point. >>
sanchez. tebow obviously not very happy. the "new york daily news" is reporting he is going to ask to be traded. not exactly a ringing endorsement or anything from rex ryan. i mean wow. >> nothing. can we just acknowledge the craziness here? we're talking about a football team that is 6-8 and is not going to go to the playoffs this year for the second consecutive year but the jets are the story and it's because of tim tebow who is this intensely polarizing player who electrified the country as a member of the denver broncos. >> do you think he's asking to be traded? >> i think that's definitely a possibility. i think mark sanchez, who is the other jets quarterback being passed over here, he could also be gone. there's a lot of turmoil. >> why are they not using tebow? there was this gigantic fan fare when he came in and i don't think in terms of playing he was a star, but certainly in terms of what he could bring for the team he was. why is this not the opportunity? they're losing anyway. >> of course. you'd think a team like the jets, which has always been into doing crazy things
, it's a rain maker for new york, philadelphia and washington, but then that moves out by tomorrow afternoon. >> just so i make it home to see mom. >> you'll get there. >> i hope so. thanks, alexandra. >>> two state department officials employees of hillary clinton are testifying right now before the house and senate committees after that blistering report on exactly what went wrong in benghazi, the committee headed by thomas pickering and admiral mike mullen. admiral mullen had this to say. >> while we did not find that any individual u.s. government employee engaged in willful misconduct or knowingly ignored his or her responsibilities, we did conclude that certain state department bureau level senior officials in critical positions of authority and responsibility in washington demonstrated a lack of leadership and management ability appropriate for senior ranks in their responses to security concerns posed by the special mission. >> a total of four senior state department officials have either resigned or placed on administrative leave in the wake of this report but what about s
to say the scariest thing to me with respect to newtown was when i g-chatted my fellow editor in new york to plot out coverage, and we knew exactly what to do because we had done it three times before. it had gotten so routine and so disturbing to us and i'm worried i'll be writing the same story. >> we can't desensitize ourselves to this, though. >> listen, we're not going to. i've heard about '68 as far as what califano said and how quickly we have to move. this is different. the horrors of martin luther king, the horrors of bobby kennedy, the horrors of all the gun violence through the years, a million americans killed. mark halperin, as horrific as all of those murders have been, nothing has jarred americans like what happened last friday. it just hasn't. americans aren't going to forget this. >> they're not. >> they're not going to forget this, and they're expecting action. you worry, again, if republicans and democrats can't come to an agreement on rounding decisions for ten years, how are they going to address the bigger issues? >> well, we don't really know how the fiscal cliff's

well know, a lot of folks in suburban, new york, long island, people decidedly not in white-collar job, two income couples earning a quarter of a million dollars a year, they are not in the millionaire and billionaire category and certainly don't thing themselves wealthy by any stretch of the imagination. how does the president sell a tax increase on that group? >> you're exactly right, jon. that is where chuck schumer, represents new york, made that case. he said a while ago he would be more comfortable at a million. like i said i thought what would happen we would be compromising somewhere around half a million mark as the cuttoff on the increase in rates. but i don't know. they, both sides seem to be pretty intransient. president at00,000 as the level he would increase -- 400,000. jon: there are questions whether john boehner has enough votes even in the house to get his plan b threw. he is scheduled to vote i understand it. he must think he will win on that score. you're saying that the president would rather veto a tax increase on that highest million and up income level americans

and new york and los angeles. so jake, keep on asking those questions. we need a stronger press. >> bill: hey john, let me just explain my position here. i think it was a very fair question. you've heard me ask the question if you're a regular. and been very critical. and i've asked questions of jay carney at the briefing about why the president hadn't acted, for example, on the assault weapons ban. i'm just saying there is a way to ask that question which preserves the dignity of the media -- of the press and of the president of the united states. i had a long conversation after the briefing yesterday, for example, with peter baker from "the new york times" and peter said look, that was a legitimate question but he said the way i would have asked it would have been mr. president, you said sunday night that, as a nation, we have not done enough to protect our kids. do you include yourself in those who have not done enough and do you regret, given what happened in newtown connecticut that you didn't do more in your firs
to share. yesterday in tribute firefighters from as far away as new york city lined the street outside the catholic church in newtown, forming an honor guard as the hearse carrying daniel's body passed. firemen in full gear and uniforms saluted the little boy, recognizing the young child who hoped to join their ranks one day. another photo shows a man riding in the funeral procession holding a piece of paper out the window with the simple message, thank you all. look at that. well, at the same time, investigators continue pursuing their research, and today are going after a new angle in the search for a motive in this massacre. i mean, they just want to understand so they can prevent other tragedies in the future. experts are asking a yes nettist from the university of connecticut to contribute now to the investigation of the shooter in the hope that lanza's biology can reveal what may have been behind this massacre. dr. michael baden is a world renowned forensic pathologist, the best, and a fox news contributor who has worked so many high profile cases, we can barely name them all, th
the #1 gastroenterologist recommended probiotic. align. >>> good morning, new york. look at that great shot. come over after two strong days of gains, u.s. markets closed lower yesterday. stock futures are down this morning as fiscal cliff talks stall in washington. >> so here's the deal. you can see a delay in getting your tax refund next year unless congress moves on the fiscal cliff soon. this is going to hurt all of us. christine has details. >> we're already there. tax season starts in a couple weeks. you're going to start getting 1099s at the end of january and you have companies -- the government can't change in just one week or two weeks. if you're talking about having to make retro active tax changes, i mean it's really a mess. i want to talk about the amt in particular here. you know, the irs acting director warned congress about a real problem with not passing an amt patch. if the amt patch goes away, every year we patch this amt. amt was meant to make sure that rich people paid a minimum amount of tax now because of the way congress designed it in the infinite black wisdom.
. and democratic comgressman eliot engel of new york, who will become that committee's ranking member in the next term. congressman royce, let me start with you. what's the key thing we learned from this report? where do you see the main failure? >> well, i think the main failure when you read the report is in management at senior levels because when you had on the ground was not only an ambassador but other personnel warning that al qaeda camps were growing, explaining that they felt that they were at risk personally, asking for support-- which was not forth come ago and coming to the conclusion that washington was not concerned about their security needs. so all of that comes out in the memos. and i think what has to be addressed is why not only was the preparation not there, but somebody forgot to circle the calendar on 9/11. there was no attempt or no effective way, i guess, desploid should this happen that we could come in with a quick-reaction team and assist them if they come under attack. eight-hour firefight, no assistance through that period. >> eliot engel, do you read it any fferently
. >> in times of stress, this economy turns to the new york stock exchange. there is a reason there is an american flag wrapped around the front of this building. charlie: you are committed to the floor traders, keeping them here? >> absolutely. connell: charlie live now from the floor. pretty big day down there, obviously. charlie: i am blown away by this story. we were pretty much on this thing from the get go. this was on a merger. the initial reports coming out of the, i believe, "wall street journal." this is a 200-year-old institution being taken over by a company from atlanta that has been in business for the last 12 years. this is amazing. that is like the glass half empty or half full power. about another year ago, we were talking about, and a lot of people moaning about a german institution taking over the new york stock exchange. that says something about america's dominance in world finance. we are seeing an entrepreneurial company now taking over the stock exchange. that is not bad. that is what american capitalism is all about. that is something to be celebrating
going? are we going to end up with just one exchange at some point. >> right here in new york. it will be slated. i would not be surprised in three years that new york stock exchange buys nazdaq i'll leave it at that. gerri: oh, boy charlie thank you, appreciate your time and breaking news that is the willis report, thank you for joining us. lou: good evening, president obama and time honored phrase could be about on snatch defeat from the jawzs of victory, things not looking so good for the president in negotiations over the fifth most actively traded issue. over the fifth -- fifth call cliff. that seem yesterday to be making progress, demanding that congress raise taxes while threatening to veto a bill that would keep current tax rates in place for 99% of the country, the president further demanding that washington go his way or no way at all, president obama seems to be on his way to perhaps becoming the imperious president. >> i've asked the vice president to lead an effort that includes members of my cabinet and outside organization to come up with concrete proposals no l
